Monitoring and research

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that from August 8 it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, in this news story.

Monitoring is key to the successful development of the evidence base supporting the production of the Local Plan.

Housing and employment monitoring

We monitor housing and employment land availability - the development of new sites and supply of land with planning permission. The most recent housing data is available in the 5 year housing supply table:

The Council’s assessment of its housing land supply position takes account of the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this has included input from site developers / promoters.

Employment land data and the housing trajectory is available in the Annual Monitoring Report at the bottom of this page.

All councils are required to produce an Annual Monitoring Report. This will be the main way to assess the Local Plan's performance and effects. In the short term it will also monitor the policies of the adopted Local Plan.
